Learn the way you want to with this e-learning app
Seesaw: The Learning Journal is an educational program that enables teachers, students, and families to approach learning creatively. Developed by Seesaw Learning, this e-learning software is available for both PC and mobile devices, making use of the platforms’ flexibility to aid in instructing and studying. This app is for both student and teacher use, while family members have a separate app in order to track the student’s progress. Seesaw greatly focuses on closer interaction between all three groups, so their teamwork will help improve the student’s progress in school. The app is also user-friendly and versatile for students, letting them give solutions in their own way.
All in this together
Like its name, Seesaw needs at least two people working together in order to move. For students, this app is an inspiring student-driven digital portfolio that offers various creative ways to express themselves. They can submit journals of what they understood through photos, videos, drawings, notes, and more—making use of phones and tablets’ convenient portability. For teachers, on the other hand, this app offers tons of activities for lessons, saving them time from making those from scratch and gathering materials themselves.
The e-learning app also makes it easier for both students and teachers to communicate with each other. With this, showing feedback and tracking progress are easily shown and addressed. Seesaw’s cross-platform capabilities are great since it can be on any device, either shared or just one-to-one. Teachers don’t have to handle lots of paperwork either, and the app is always free for them. It’s compatible with many other apps—even those only available to Apple and Google.
You can translate notes, comments, and captions into over 50 languages, breaking down language barriers. The family, especially the parents, can also join in on this endeavor. However, they’ll be needing the Seesaw Parent & Family app instead. That app can connect with this one and show the progress the student has completed thus far. Seesaw is mostly great, and it only needs a few more interface-intuitive features to become perfect.
